Rule ChangesThe uk association has worked tirelessly with the WTC, tasar experts, local boat builder, and Julian Bethwaite to ensure the rules reflect UK requirements.
In particular they have agreed a proposed rule change to the treatment allowed to the existing dagger box. The proposal allows the box to have a similar hydrodynamic performance to the new vertical faced boxes, thereby dealing with concerns of perceived performance differences.
The UK supplied 29er boom is fitted out to original 1970’s specification which results in the spanner de-rotating. After prolonged debate the rules do not specifically talk about the solution of duplicate relocated mainsheet becket. However the WTC measurer is to write to the Tasar UK association and Worlds 2019 Chief Measurer, with a solution that will ensure boats are able to compete without modification in the 2019 Worlds.
To approve the proposed changes we must accept all three modifications to the rules.
It is the Tasar Uk Association committee intention to recommend acceptance in line with their delegated capabilities. Any significant comment’s regarding the changes need to be sent to the Chairman, Tasar Uk Class.
